RALEIGH, N.C., May 3, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With summer just around the corner, many readers will be searching for the best picks to take with them on their travels. Whether they are hitting the beach, heading across country, or relaxing in the hammock out in the yard, summer is a popular time for people to take in a few books. But summer only lasts so long, so it's important to narrow down the selection and choose from ones that have a reputation for wowing readers.
"It would be great if we had time to read every book we come across," explains Sarah Gilbert, director of sales at Lulu.com, a self-publishing company. "But that's simply not reality. Being able to narrow down your list to a few that are recommended by others, or have a buzz around them, will help ensure that you enjoy the hours you put into the books, this summer."
Here are Lulu.com's top picks for summer reading:
"When you are making your summer picks, whether for a book club or just for yourself, check out one or all of these titles," adds Gilbert. "You will not be disappointed. The reviews that have come in on these hot picks make them all a safe bet for affordable and enjoyable entertainment, this summer."
